It’s official! The Wild have hired their 4th coach in team history. The good news? It’s not Randy Carlyle. The better news? It’s Bruce Boudreau, the top coach on the market. Tony sits down with Dustin Nelson of Pretty Much Everywhere to break down all the ramifications surrounding the Wild’s big hiring.

Topics covered are:

  • What made Minnesota such a good fit for Boudreau? Was it more than the money?
  • Can he develop the Wild’s young defensemen as well as he did in Anaheim?
  • Whether his playoff failings- especially in Game 7s- are a concern
  • What style of play we might see under Boudreau
  • Is the Wild’s cap situation as bad as everyone thinks?
  • Did the Wild miss the boat on Jonathan Drouin?
  • Why Ryan Nugent-Hopkins might actually be the player the Wild need right now
  • Whether Edmonton’s 4th overall pick should be the team’s #1 trade target
  • Potential Draft targets for the Wild at Pick 15
  • What a rampaging Ryan Suter might sound like
  • Boudreau’s potential as an action hero

And much, much more!
